A group of college teachers and employers from Finland, Iceland, Holland and France came to Hereford as part of a European project to look at best practice in apprenticeship training.

Project Coordinator for UK, Philip Broomhead said,” We all face the same challenges in vocational education and training to ensure that young people have the best chance for sustainable employment and development. This project will look at how employers support their apprentices and the relationship between employer and VET provider.”

The group visited Arctic Circle where Managing Director, Debbie Gittoes explained how they select and grow young talent to become valued members of their workforce. At the Business Solutions Centre,  Skylon Park, Rotherwas, Wolverhampton University’s Charlotte Thomas introduced the role of Degree Apprenticeships  as work based progression routes for apprentices to higher education and training.

Philip Broomhead added, “ We are pleased to be working with the Chamber of Commerce to get feedback and involvement from employers in this project.” The project will continue over the coming 3 years to explore good practice across the European countries and provide examples of excellence in the approach to work based training.
